April 2012 will mark the release of the latest line of protective gear from Bauer Hockey. Below we have a great shot of the brand new Bauer Vapor APX gloves, APX shoulder pads, APX shin guards and APX elbow pads. The Bauer Vapor APX line of protective gear will pick up right where the X60 line left off, adding some new features as well.
Bauer’s Vapor APX glove has a great design to it, and looks like it will be a popular item. It’s going to provide a more snug fit than a 4-roll style glove, but still provide a bit of extra space for your hand. The APX shin guards and elbow pads look to carry a narrow profile, but still offer all of the protection you would expect in a pro level piece of equipment.
The Bauer APX shoulder pads, along with the shin guards and elbow pads, carry a very clean look. The various tones of grey, white and black go together very nicely, and the red accents add an excellent element of design to make them pop. Of course design isn’t everything, especially on protective equipment, and the APX series is sure to come up clutch where it really matters, protection.
Take a look at the new Bauer Vapor APX gloves, shoulder pads, shin gaurds and elbow pads below and let us know what you think. Is the Vapor APX line their best one yet?
